any opinions on Shuron? I've been thinking of picking up a pair of clear Freeways. they're wayfarer-esque and seem classic. not that familiar with the brand, though. thoughts?

Also... i'm really liking those Moscots too. good price too.

I ordered a pair of Shuron glasses last year and they have been in one piece since. I ordered by phone with a knowledgeable clerk in South Carolina who recorded my size and had my frames shipped to my house within a week. Shuron has a very broad and timeless selection of frame designs since Shuron has manufactured eyeglasses since 1865. They offered to apply my lens prescription but I had that done at Optical One after reviving the first pair that actually fit to my liking. The price was reasonable and preferably a better pick than any style I could have chose at my optical store. Visit their web site and find a style that appeals to you. I think it's worth the try. My frames are the "Freeway" style.

I am curious about SuFu's opinion on wearing glasses if you don't need them. I've always wanted to wear glasses but despite my dad, brother, and mother having issues with their eyesight mine remains unimpaired.

last year i got a pair of oliver goldsmith's shipped from japland and have been so very satisfied with it ever since.

consul-s model in that celluloid material. same type used to make guitar picks, so it's got more polish and it fits every occasion/outfit for the most part just because the shit's so basic, but done well. and not ray-ban-ish.

as good as it is, i recently stopped by the dita store however and fell in love with this fucking thom browne pair in the satin grey variation:

natalia brilli did one and i am sure valextra did, too. you can always check out brands like corter or tanner goods (perhaps request a custom-made one ).

^ i've come across their stuff in an advert on smith journal. have you handled them in real life? how is the quality?

The quality is quite low, its what you would expect out of a frame that costs that much. They try to pass it off as the same quality as a pair of frames that costs five times as much but the truth is you're getting what you pay for when it comes to the finish and feel.

I'll probably wear my Moscot's for a hell of a long time. Pretty much perfect size and shape for me.

^ you're talking about warby, right, kiya?

i haven't handled warby parker, but have so with oscar wylee. i'm hardly a connoisseur but the frames felt of decent quality. in fact, the matte frames in particular, felt very nice and quite substantial in hand. i haven't yet received my pair so time will tell but they felt on par with the RVS by V, LA eyeworks and moscot frames i've handled.

The black plastic on my frames has started to fade and now has a white dusty appearance.  Anything I can do to restore the color?

White, dusty, milky and fading means the plastic has been oxidized and is drying out.

Either naturally or from prolonged or excessive use and lastly being exposed to the elements (including sweat).

There are products that restore color. You apply a chemical to it that literally moisturizes it. But the chemical itself will eventually dry out too. I do this to certain plastic, vinyl and rubber parts of my car.

Thom Browne by Dita are top quality eyewear.

But saying 'almost half a thousand dollars' is pretty melodramatic....

I agree with sean9 though.

They're very simple looking & other than quality workmanship, they don't ready justify the price.

Get something nicer.
